Amy Poehler to write a memoir


Amy Poehler is writing a memoir, but it wouldn’t be like any traditional memoir. The funny lady is set to publish an “illustrated, non-linear diary full of humor and honesty and brimming with true stories, fictional anecdotes and life lessons” with HarperCollins’ ‘It Books’ pop culture imprint.

The 41-year-old “Parks and Recreation” star reportedly wanted her book to have a universal appeal and serve as a guide for young women transitioning into adulthood.

In a press release, It Books executive editor Carrie Thornton announced the news, saying: “When I first talked to Amy about a book I was blown away by her creativity and her passion for the project. I am now so excited to be working with her and making her ideas a reality. Amy’s intelligence, comedic genius, and care for her craft shines through everything she does, and I know that this book will be no exception. To have the chance to work with an artist of this caliber is every editor’s great hope, and I can’t wait to see how this book evolves.”

Poehler’s memoir has no title yet, but it is tentatively scheduled to hit the shelves in the fall of 2014.
